Wire & Gas venue confirmed, line-up firms – tickets on sale soon!

The 2024 VASA Wire & Gas convention has been scheduled for August 23-25 and will take place at The Westin Brisbane (111 Mary Street in the CBD).

Brisbane’s bustling CBD and nearby Botanical Gardens, as well as South Bank’s pristine parklands and its famous Streets Beach lagoon, make the Queensland capital a compelling backdrop for the Australasian automotive air-conditioning, electrical and thermal management industry’s flagship event.

As the airport is located just 15km from Brisbane CBD, you can be in the heart of the city in just 20 minutes via AirTrain, taxi or rideshare.

VASA is delighted to announce that Grant Hand will be among the line-up of experts at Wire & Gas 2024 in a special session where he will share his vast automotive air-conditioning knowledge and reflect on a career that has been pivotal to many working in this industry.
